FluGlobalNet, enhancing global Animal Influenza networks logo

FluGlobalNet is founded by the Animal and Plant Health Agency, to deliver new opportunities for the global community and is part of our outreach as an International Reference Laboratory (IRL) and the National Reference Laboratory for Avian Influenza, Animal (especially swine) Influenza and Newcastle Disease. Its aim is to facilitate information and science exchange on the above diseases forming a virtual network.

This network provides an interactive forum for laboratory specialists and other scientific professionals working in the area of veterinary public health with specific interest in animal influenza. It also provides a rapid way of disseminating some of the latest information at a global level to keep users at the forefront of knowledge for these continually evolving pathogens.

Further guidance and updates on the current avian influenza situation are also posted regularly on GOV.UK.
